Tillamook County with a 57.9% vaccination rate of those eligible will remain at Moderate Risk; only 7.1% to reach the new vaccination goal set by the state.
Following the Governor’s Office announcement this afternoon, the statewide goal for those receiving at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose is 70% of those eligible for the vaccine (16 years and older) and 65% in a given county.
Once a county meets the county goal, the county will remain in the lowest risk level with the possibility to move starting as early as next Friday May 21, 2021. When the statewide goal is met, the COVID-19 risk level assignments will be removed. The Governor’s Office predicts Oregon meeting the statewide goal by the end of June 2021.
Good news, cases are slowing in Tillamook County, with 41 new confirmed and presumptive cases from Sunday 4/28/21 – Saturday 5/08/21, Tillamook County remains at Moderate Risk until May 20 and we are already have 57.9% of those age eligible in the county vaccinated with at least one dose.
